[An] impressive catalogue . . . [that] brings welcome and enduring order to a phenomenon in Dutch painting that occurred between about 1650 and 1675: a flourishing of paintings of indoor activities, rendered with extraordinary attention to light effects, color, and texture. . . . Highly recommended. --A. Golahny, Choice
